Being a Senior Care Assistant at Care UK
Senior Care Assistants at Care UK are already used to caring for others. They’re passionate about what they do, flexible in their approach and great at building a rapport with everyone they deal with. They inspire professionalism. They cope with difficult situations using tact and diplomacy and take responsibility for resolving them. They enjoy collaborating with others and sharing information and ideas. They raise standards through innovation. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you have the same sort of attributes? Then we could have just the role for you.
What you’ll be doing
Being a Senior Care Assistant isn’t just about providing leadership and support for a care team. It’s about acting as a role model for good practice and a champion for residents’ dignity and safety. It’s about regularly assessing, monitoring and reviewing day-to-day processes and coming up with improvements where required. And, it's about ensuring that clear and accurate records and communication systems relating to clinical and care delivery are properly maintained and effectively used. Put simply, it’s about making a difference. A real difference.
What you’ll need
An NVQ and relevant experience is essential, including a good understanding of care planning processes and a proven ability to write concise care plans. We’ll also be looking for individuals who are well-organised, with excellent supervisory skills and used to planning, allocating and delegating work appropriately. What's more, you have experience of contributing to, monitoring and implementing changes that improve outcomes for residents. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.The benefits

Heavers Court is a stylish and contemporary purpose-designed care home in Croydon, Greater London.
Our experienced team offers personalised residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
At Heavers Court, the care we provide is high quality and always person-centred. We get to know every resident as an individual, finding out about their lifetime experiences, their interests and hobbies, and the things they like and dislike.
Our team is very friendly and approachable – although we hold regular reviews of care plans with residents and family members, you’ll find that we’ll always make time for a chat at other times too. Our open door policy means that relatives and friends are welcome to visit whenever they wish, day or night. We really value the support we get from residents’ families, who often volunteer to chair meetings and take part in fundraising activities.
